Ex-prisoners from Nablus province launched cries for help after the Palestinian Authority (PA), chaired by Mahmoud Abbas, cut their salaries.
Palestinian ex-prisoner Mohamed al-Sheikh Khalil, from Nablus’s Balata refugee camp, said the Minister of Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs spoke to him by phone and told him that the PA suspended his salary at the request of the Prime Minister, Rami al-Hamdallah.
Al-Sheikh, held in Israeli jails for over 11 years, added that no offenses or felonies figure in his criminal record.
The ex-prisoner said that the PA’s decision to cut his salary, among others’, is arbitrary and makes part of preplanned crackdowns against Palestinian human rights activists.
